The Chopo tool belt strikes a balance between essential carry on the dominant side and a pouch large enough for a speed square on the non-dominant side. It also includes a hammer holster and nailer loop so you are ready for a wide variety of fasteners. We worked with our friend Joe Canning (@canadian_carpenter) to design a minimalist framing set-up, but the Chopo has found a home with many carpenters, drywallers and others who are looking to keep the weight down and the versatility up.

The Chopo FAQ
Can I get a left-handed Chopo tool belt?
Yes. You'll need to pick out your pouches, belt, and holsters individually. When you do select your pouches, choose the "left side" option.
Can I order an Extra Small or XXXL?
Yes. Just order your own belt, pouches, and holsters separately. When picking out a belt, choose which size you need, Extra Small or XXXL.
I want to add or subtract a pouch, holster, or accessory to The Chopo. Can I do that?
Absolutely! We encourage everyone working any trade to build out a tool belt system unique to their personal work style. Pick out your own belt, pouches, holsters, and accessories separately. Assemble them once your order is delivered.
See our video on how to build your own tool belt system.

Do I need a belt size larger for extra layers during winter?
No. Measure around your belly button as instructed. We've already taken extra layers of clothes into account for you.
Why is The Chopo so expensive?
It’s no secret that Diamondback is more expensive than big box store brands. Here are just a few of the reasons why:
- Diamondback products are built in the USA. So labor costs are more expensive than a mass produced tool belt manufactured in a sweatshop. We believe in paying an honest wage for quality work.
- We don’t use cheap materials! From Military grade 1000D Nylon, to antimicrobial, flame resistant, quick drying, patented SuperFabric, to Cobra Quick Release buckles used by astronauts, we only use the best quality materials.
- Time and research. Before you ever see a belt, pouch, or bag on our website, know that it has been tested by real people on the job site. We take their feedback, make changes and improvements so you can have a setup that just works. This process can take months or years.
Is The Chopo as strong as a leather tool belt?
All Diamondback products are made with 1000 Denier(a measure of thickness) Nylon. 1000D Nylon has an abrasion resistance(the ability to resist wear) and tear strength greater than leather. Watch us stress test Leather and 1000 D Nylon. Or just see the chart below.

1000D nylon is so strong that it:
- Was used in tires in World War II
- Replaced leather in light combat boots for the US Army in the 1990s
- Is used in high performance mountain climbing gear
Is there any discount for buying a pre-made tool belt system vs. buying the individual components?
It's the same cost to build your own system as it is to buy a pre-made system.
